Promoting or Perturbing Success: The Effects of Aid on Timing to Latino Students' First Departure from College
Gross, Jacob P. K.
Journal of Hispanic Higher Education, v10 n4 p317-330 Oct 2011
Using event history modeling, this study explored to what extent loans, grants, institutional aid, and work-study affect timing to first departure for Latino college students. The goal is to understand more about how aid promotes or perturbs success for Latino students as well as how those effects vary over time. Federal grants and targeted loans reduced likelihood of departure (attrition). Findings suggest that aid is a necessary but not sufficient condition for success. (Contains 1 figure, 3 tables and 2 notes.)
